The face on the left resembles the cover to her blockbuster autobiographical comic Smile, a frequent inhabitant of the New York Times bestseller list, making the connection between the two obvious to readers eager to consume more of her work.

Sisters is due in stores August 26, 2014. Here’s an official description:

Raina can’t wait to be a big sister. But once Amara is born, things aren’t quite how she expected them to be. Amara is cute, but she’s also a cranky, grouchy baby, and mostly prefers to play by herself. Their relationship doesn’t improve much over the years, but when a baby brother enters the picture and later, something doesn’t seem right between their parents, they realize they must figure out how to get along. They are sisters, after all.

Raina uses her signature humor and charm in both present-day narrative and perfectly placed flashbacks to tell the story of her relationship with her sister, which unfolds during the course of a road trip from their home in San Francisco to a family reunion in Colorado.
